Do Cat Groomers Exist?

We would like to find a cat groomer for, yes, a lion cut plus occasional combing and ear cleaning. Persian cat wiggles, cannot scratch, sometimes is very well behaved, occasionally quite vocal. Suggestions on who/where please?

  • Try asking your vet. They probably know someone.

  • Try Cindy at Hyde Park Animal Hospital on Stoney. She used to be the groomer at Parker's Pets. My friend's mom had a cat that literally scared any service provider who came in contact with him, but for some reason Cindy was able to calm him down and provide him with a handsome lion cut. She is truly a gem.

  • thank you; we really hoped for comments with first-hand experience

University of Chicago Course Promoting Murder of Police Officers!

We like to think our University of Chicago is a serious academic institution that teaches the great books and avoids the type of trendy fads and fashions that come and go and make working class Americans dismiss college as a complete waste of time and money.

That's great guys - this really makes our University of Chicago look like a high class serious academic institution.

    "Preckwinkle, Foxx, Dart and Evans are responsible"

    I respond: Yes you are correct on this Joe.

    Hey Joe - are you interested in using some of the effective tactics hard core Leftists use to punish their Conservative opponents? What effective tactic is called "Doxing" this entails publishing the person details of where their opponents:

    Live
    Work
    Hang Out

    They work to get their opponents fired from their jobs, get their family and friends to disown them and generally work to ruin the lives of their opponents. Leftists did this to anyone who contributed to the California Traditional Marriage ballot initiative. We could do the same with Foxx, Dart and Evans. It's important to take strong steps discouraging any violent or illegal activities, but there is nothing illegal or immortal about letting Chicago crime victims know where Foxx, Dart and Evans work and sleep and where they enjoy their wealthy, cushy lives while us regular citizens have to deal with the terror.

    I must complain again about the increasing censorship on Everyblock of practical solution oriented posts and comments that promote the rule of law, decent common sense discipline in our schools.

    I made a post promoting both:

    Sensible gun control laws and practical enforcement and

    Opposed the recent student disruptions/rioting at Kenwood and Simeon. Simeon Students ransacked the local Wallmart store and threatened and attacked shoppers during the supposed 17 minute national student walkout.

    This shameful, criminal actions by Simeon and some Kenwood students happened. So why does Everyblock and most of the Mainstream Media besides Fox cover up and censor these real events and censor us regular American tax payers who want sensible gun laws, rules AND common sense discipline for our public school students.
